Since until now many posts have already been written already about the results of the Lisbon Treaty referendum in Ireland, I don't need to add much.
What I can add from the bubble is that the smiling face and the deep relief of the European Commissioner I was standing next to when they showed the final results on a TV screen this evening was a good sign how important this result - 67,1% YES at a 59% turnout rate - was for European politicians.
And I can add that I am happy, too, hoping that we'll soon get to end of this pre-reform mess and finally get to the post-reform mess...
re-publica is broken, but I hope not beyond repair
